Since many of our machines, including the PistenBullys, depend on high-quality lubricants”, he adds, “the only way for us to further improve our range of services was with the right lubrication technology supplier. What’s more, MOTOREX offers quick technical advice and provided lubricant technology training right at the start of our partnership.” Its partnership with MOTOREX is a perfect element in Winn Marketing’s efforts to defend its leadership position in the various markets it serves. • FACTS AND FIGURES Company Headquarters Founded Employees Activities Sales Winn Marketing AB Umeå, 700 km north of Stockholm, Sweden 1983 14 (plus various independent contractors) Exclusive importer of heavy specialty equipment such as snow groomers, ice resurfacers, implement carriers and electric utility vehicles for Sweden and various Scandinavian and European countries EUR 10 million MOTOREX MAGAZINE 101 I APRIL 2014 15
